What's cooking in La Cuisine d'Hélène today? I started my day with a hot cup of coffee to warm my hands because we have been having fall weather in Ottawa, it's cold outside. When the days get colder I like to bake. It's no secret to anyone that I am a peanut butter fan. I am known to hide a jar in my suitcase when I travel. I need my daily dose of peanut butter. It was a no brainer to decide to bake these Butter-For-You Peanut Butter Cookies today. And the best thing about these cookies is that they use only 3 ingredients and one bowl. Don't you love those recipes? I do, and now that my two sons are starting university and college soon we need those quick, fast recipes. These peanut butter cookies are a favourite snack here. Serve them on a nice plate with fruits when your kids come home from school. I like to eat them with a glass of almond milk or a cup of tea.
I will probably bake them during the holidays and bring them as a gift for my nieces. I'm sure they will enjoy this treat!
BETTER-FOR-YOU PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
1 cup Light Kraft Smooth Peanut Butter
1/2 cup sugar
Here's a link to the full recipe for Better-For-You Peanut Butter Cookies
I like to use a small ice cream scoop to make the cookie balls. I spray the scoop with PAM and the dough does not stick.
Make a criss cross pattern on your cookies using a fork before baking.
